Today, I woke up like everyday at 6 AM. I took my phone BEFORE waking up the kids to school to check if there were orders in my stores, or new followers in social media, or messages from my family in Chile. BIG SURPRISE: ZERO!
First thought was OMG! what happened? why this is all down, I need to work! I have been spending time making reels and stories to grow my audience, giving so much time to something I love that is my Shop.
Today we were forced to live and relate as our parents did: without social networks.
This morning one of my boys was a little sick. Normally, I would give him some medicine and keep doing my work deep inside of social networks. This time, this unique opportunity gave me the chance to spend quality and REAL time with him. No phone, no social media, nothing. And GOD, was the best morning in a long time! We had lunch together, ate candy, laugh and talk. My 5 year old was so happy. And so was I.
I wanted to share my experience with this community, as was important to me I imagine it may be for you as well. Enjoy your families, friends, in person and not only with emoticons and virtual hearts. If possible, let's hug each other, let's say "I love you" live because that "I love you" is the one that counts; our faces have no filters. If we are far away, let's talk on the phone, instead of just texting each other.
Because no social media can replace a touch, a kiss a hug a voice or a face.
Have a great week!
